It’s Not Who You Know, It’s Who You Are: Life Lessons From Winners-Book Review

INWYKBack Cover Copy: We live in a culture obsessed with celebrity. We love winners and we want to be winners. But take it from a man who knows more famous people than most of us will ever meet–it’s not who you know that’s important, it’s who you are inside.

In this inspiring book, Pat Williams draws from over fifty years of brushing shoulders with the greats to help you discover what it really means to be a winner. Through his short meditations on success, leadership, family and friends, impact and influence, and becoming a person of excellence, you’ll meet

· a young singer who messed up the national anthem and shot to stardom anyway
· a coach who sacrificed his time to give his players the edge
· a marathon runner who knew the secret to pacing yourself
· a political outsider who confidently reached for an impossible goal
· a football player who wouldn’t let a broken leg stop him from getting to the Super Bowl
· and many more ordinary people with extraordinary character

These entertaining stories of fascinating people from all walks of life will motivate you to do your best, be yourself, and continually strive to be the person God made you to be.

Katy Lee’s Review:  I decided to review this book because I thought it would make a great collection to my homeschool curriculum as a downtime read-along during our school days.  We couldn’t get to it everyday, but when we did the stories offered wonderful springboards into great discussions.  There were even some stories I had heard before and knew there were videos of some of the people on the web that I could look up.  It really brought the stories to life for my kids.  “It’s Not Who You Know, It’s Who You Are” is a book for all ages, and I recommend it especially to parents looking for short stories they can share with their children, but also to show them they, too, can be winners.

Thank you, Revell, for sending me the book for my honest opinion!
